Body Contouring High Definition
High definition for the male body is obtained by performing liposuction with Vaser technology to reduce the most fat possible and allow the abdominal muscles, such as the obliques and the ones responsible for the six pack, to be revealed. This procedure can also be done in the shoulder and biceps area to better reveal those muscles. Fat that is removed can also be injected into the muscles to make them appear bigger.

Prepping for your surgery
During the consultation, your medical history will be taken in order for Dr. Sigler to evaluate your general health. A careful examination will also be conducted. Together with Dr. Sigler, you will discuss the procedure and communicate your desires, your concerns and the results you hope to achieve. You may bring photographs to show Dr. Sigler examples of what you are looking for. Dr. Sigler will go over details of the procedure itself and the possible risks and complications as it pertains to any medical or structural issues she sees in your case. She will go over the type of anesthesia to be used. Once you have all your questions answered, you will both agree on a surgery plan and a proposed date. Photos are taken before and after the surgery in order to determine the amount of improvement.
Setting Your Surgery Date
A deposit is required to confirm the date and time of the procedure. See pricing and payment above for details.
If You Smoke
If you smoke, this habit should be stopped at least two months prior to surgery. This includes vaping and marijuana smoking.
Two Weeks Prior to Surgery
Review and download this list of medications and supplements to avoid.
Stop taking any medication on this list two to three weeks before the surgery. Avoid any intake of aspirin, ibuprofen, Naproxen (excedrin, Motrin, Aleve, Advil), vitamins that include vitamin E, and energy drinks as well.
Arrange for family or friends to be available for assistance when you return home to recuperate. Clear your schedule. Make a list and organize your environment to be safe and condusive to bedrest. Stock your kitchen and plan ahead for a period of time spent watching TV, reading or simply relaxing.
Pre-op labwork should be done two weeks before the surgery with your own doctor, and then sent to Dr. Sigler. If you prefer Dr. Sigler to do the labwork, you will need to make arrangements prior to your surgery date. Required labwork includes:
CBC (Complete Blood Count), CMP (Chemical Metabolic Panel), PT (Prothrombin Time) and INR, PTT (Partial Thromboplastin Time) and any other labwork specific to your particular medical condition(s), such as a Thyroid Hormonal Panel.
If you are over 50, it will be necessary to have a cardiovascular assessment including an EKG and possibly a chest x-ray. Dr. Sigler will advise.
Approval for Surgery
If you are currently undergoing treatment for a medical condition or disease, a letter from your treating specialist must be sent to Dr. Sigler at least two weeks prior to the surgery stating you are cleared to go ahead with the procedure, and include any pre-op and post-op recomendations in order to avoid possible complications during or after the surgical procedure.
Night before Surgery
Eat a lighter dinner and do not eat or drink past midnight.
Day of Surgery
Do not eat or drink anything except a little water. Allow sufficient time to get to the surgery center. Using Dr. Sigler’s car service is usually the most efficient way to ensure a timely arrival. Intake is typically scheduled two hours prior to the actual surgery. You will meet with Dr. Sigler for your pre-op consultation, pre-op photos and markings on body or face, and for a final discussion about your procedure. Paperwork is completed and final prepping by your surgical team is carefully performed.
